Diagnosed at 19

What do you want others to know about lupus?

I want people to know that Lupus is a disease that affect every race,cage and gender. I was diagnosed with Lupus at the tender age of 19. I was pregnant with my son. I had the signature sign of the butterfly in my face and blood test to confirm. While living with Lupus can take a toll on you mentally and physically I ask God to continue to give me strength.

Why is lupus a cruel mystery to you?

It has put a big impact on my life. It sometimes physically drains me. Sometimes I'm so fatigue. It also has limited me to do certain things with my hands due to having Arthirits. It is mentally challenging at times as well but I am dealing with it one day at a time.
